Sandra Winther is a New York based film director from Copenhagen, Denmark. Focused on capturing the stories and pulse of vibrant youth culture, Winther’s style builds off her experience as an editor while incorporating a documentary intimacy with moving images.
In her filmmaking, Winther seeks to bring to the forefront the unsung heroes of today. Born out of a lifelong passion for sports, dance and music there's a pulsating energy that exists within her work.
Her documentary ‘Lowland Kids’ tackles the subject of climate change through the eyes of two American teenagers on a sinking island in Louisiana. The film, which will release this winter, premiered at the SXSW Film Festival in 2019 and has received a list of awards, including the Audience Award for Best Short Documentary at Palm Springs Shortfest and Filmmaker of the Future Award at Rhode Island International Film Festival. She received a Silver Clio the same year for her collaboration with MTV and Beats by Dre for the short documentary ‘Lit! Above the Noise’ featuring Mette Towley.
Winther is currently developing concepts for television and cinema. Her commercial clients include Nike, Adidas, New Balance, Beats By Dre, MTV, i-D and more.
